Sandy asks…

Do U think the students should face criminal charges those who damaged property & those who refuse to disperse?

CHAPEL HILL – Investigators are determining whether charges are warranted after a raucous student protest broke up a controversial speaking appearance this week by a former Republican presidential candidate, Tom Tancredo, the UNC chancellor said.

Chancellor Holden Thorp sent an e-mail to students and faculty members saying that an investigation might result in criminal charges or campus honor-court charges against students. “Our Division of Student Affairs is also investigating student involvement in the protest,” he wrote. “If that investigation determines sufficient evidence, participating students could face Honor Court proceedings.”

Tancredo, known for his unwavering stance against illegal immigration, was invited by a student group to speak Tuesday about his opposition to granting in-state college tuition to illegal immigrants.

Protesters shouted profanities and unfurled banners as Tancredo, a former Colorado congressman, tried to speak to an audience in Brigham Hall. Police eventually stopped his speech and had to use pepper spray after demonstrators broke a window.

Thorp said that the university also will study what to do about controversial speakers in the future. “There’s a way to protest that respects free speech and allows people with opposing views to be heard,” he wrote. “Here that’s often meant that groups protesting a speaker have displayed signs or banners, silently expressing their opinions while the speaker had his or her say.”

Thorp and the president of the UNC system, Erskine Bowles, called Tancredo to apologize.

“He appreciates their apology,” Marcus Epstein, the executive director of Tancredo’s political-action committee, Team America PAC, said yesterday.

Epstein said that Tancredo hoped to be invited back and urged that the students responsible for the disruption be disciplined.

The people who disrupted Mr. Tancredo’s speech are bullies. The fact that they won the day and got national coverage will encourage similar behavior in the future. The only way to stop such nonsense and ensure everyone has their right to free speech defended is to shut such violent protests down on the spot, arrest those who damaged property and those who refuse to disperse. Yes, they have the right to disagree – civilly. Most of the problems in today’s society can be traced to one source: lack of respect – for self and for others. The administration at UNC showed their true colors in allowing the protesters to shut down the event; anything they do now is too little, too late; like closing the barn door after the horses are out. Just a guess, but if the roles were reversed, and those who organized the event were the protesters and vice versa, I bet there would be some protesters already expelled and sitting in jail – just a guess.

H*ll YES! Punish the punks, not the patriots who were invited to speak! Those punks need to learn this is not acceptable behavior for US citizens who disagree with someone and their actions should punished and the marks stay with them the rest of their lives… Who knows what they will destroy next, our nation? Heathen civil disobedience is not patriotic in any way, nor is it fashionable, glorious or respected!
